Building and construction work


Conventional building processes using materials such as poured concrete, mortar and plaster often involve considerable quantities of water. If you don’t effectively manage the subsequent drying-out processes and deal with the airborne humidity that these give, you’ll often have to deal with:

  • Sub-standard building quality
  • Higher construction and repair costs
  • Missed deadlines and other schedule headaches
  • Mould growth in interior spaces
  • Glitches with fit and finish


Get rid of the water TO boost quality

Airborne humidity and building finishes need balancing

There’s a lot of uncontrolled, invisible humidity in the air on most construction sites — especially until the structure is sealed against the weather.Once sealed, there’s often a lot of airborne moisture being given off from materials like poured concrete, mortar, renders and plaster.

The quality and durability of such key materials often depends on how quickly and consistently they set and dry out. Poorly controlled drying out can also have effects that include post-completion growths of mould, as well as other expensive, difficult-to-remedy glitches with finishes and fittings.

Controlled humidity eliminates problems

Cotes adsorption dehumidifiers make it easier to deal with the many drying-out processes often involved in construction work. And the sooner the interiors are dry — in accordance with set specifications — the sooner your teams and sub-contractors can get on with fixtures and fittings.

By extracting undesirable moisture from the air, these robust, reliable units provide effective control of conditions. The regeneration cycle in the dehumidifier makes it easy to lead the excess moisture offsite or into appropriate runoffs or drainage outlets. You can place them exactly where you need them, and move them around easily for maximum effect. These dehumidifiers can operate automatically and unattended round the clock, controlled by a simple sensor that registers humidity levels at any given time.


  • Drying-out schedules for the exact needs of each site, space or structure, with stable, controlled conditions throughout the process
  • Dry out key spaces regardless of weather conditions – faster completion
  • Prevent materials and structures from drying out too quickly or too slowly – better quality and greater customer satisfaction
  • Lower construction, refurbishment and rebuilding costs
  • Avoid knock-on practical problems on site associated with high humidity
  • Less risk and uncertainty in completion schedules.

How Cotes solutions stand out

  • Effective problem preventers
  • Compact, robust and reliable
  • Built for toughness – long service life
  • Low energy consumption
